This restaurant has a great piano bar and really good food, but it is by no means inexpensive. Most entrees are a little steep in price, but the food is really, really good. I have eaten there several times and everything I ordered was delicious. The Maine clam chowder is very good as are the scallops. I would suggest ordering... More

We are never disappointed. Last night the restaurant was energized, no empty seats. 4 of us, 3 had the oyster app, they all loved it, I had the chowder which I have every time, so I guess it's delicious, dah! 3 people had the scallops which I tasted, they were delicious. But the best part was my filet. It was... More

Yummy food - great service. Top shelf all the way. 5 lb. lobster imperial for ~$100 - steamed or broiled - oysters at 2 bucks each - can't remember what the wife had but she ended up licking her plate. A must visit if you're in AC !!!

Docks is an AC Landmark - Best Restaurant! I have often reserved a room in a nearby Casino in order to just dine at Docks! No gambling involved... only to have a fabulous dinner and experience at Dock's. I have been a faithful diner at Docks since the 90's when they had a piano player who played Meatloaf and Pink...

This was our first time to Dock's and it won't be our last time. We were treated to excellent service and food. The Maine Clam chowder was great as was the seared scallops with risotto (the best I have ever had). We expected small portions because of restaurant week special price and were pleasantly surprised to get regular portions. I... More

Went during AC restaurant week so we knew that it would be busy and did not expect the same quality that is always enjoyed during other visits throughout the year. We got what was expected. Fish was slightly over cooked and pace of service was off. Appetizers came right out. Long wait for entree and even longer for desert. Normally... More

In the middle of restaurant week, with a packed restaurant, another fabulous meal. We had the seafood fry and restaurant week menu salmon. Delicious! Cocktails were perfect. Servers were attentive and friendly. The tables around us also raved about their dinners. Piano in background was another perfect touch. Very nice meal. Thank you!

My boyfriend and I came here for our anniversary. First of all, one of the things I was most impressed with, is that Dock's has their own parking lot, and it's free! When we first pulled up, it kind of looks like any building in Atantic City. But, when we walked in, we were both blown away by the ambiance.... More
